Aurora borealis Northern Lights winter landscape:Spectacular display of intense green Northern Lights or Aurora borealis or polar lights over snowy northern winter landscape
Electrically charged particles from the sun, the solar wind, get caught in Earth’s magnetic field. This magnetosphere directs the particles, which are mainly protons, along its magnetic field lines to the magnetic poles of our planet. At one point, mainly in the auroral zone, the protons can reach the upper atmosphere. Charged particles interact with gas molecules such as nitrogen and oxygen. In turn they emit light. This is basically the same process that produces light in fluorescent lamps. Which are consequently also called gas discharge lamps.
But this is just a science explanation for the northern lights. It does not account in any way for the stunning beauty, dynamic and variety of the Aurora borealis when its curtains of green, red and sometimes other colors dance over the dark night sky. No wonder the Aurora borealis got named after Aurora, the Roman goddess of dawn. Or called “Dance of the Spirits” by the Cree. Or was generally seen as a sign of God. – How would you feel in a Aurora borealis Northern Lights winter landscape?(All links to Wikipedia.org)
